Okay, everyone, just hear me out:
So as to avoid any major issues, I'd offer this to a GM as an Aspected Spellcaster base, instead of just "no projection". So he's got the Sorcery spell group, can do astral perception, and has access to qi.
I'm thinking of him as a pseudo-face whose main aim is to caution against violence because he'll be scary when he has to do it.

Starting Contacts: (0)
Talismonger, Fixer, Political Activist, Parabotanist (Connection/Loyalty TBD, maybe one of them is his SO)

Basically, he shows up with Increase CHA on him unless the meet stipulates "No Magic", and offers, at other times, Increase AGI on someone else, maintained through the focus, or on him if nobody wants it. He likes to intimidate people by climbing up on tall things, partially so, when he or an ally gets hurt, he begins his furious outrage by leaping at the jerk who took a shot at him/his ally, swinging his axe down. His backstory involves an Awakening around party-filled university days, too much trid, and a stalwart belief that wanton cruelty is far too widespread these days. While he can be subtle, he's no assassin, and he's mildly paranoid about astral projection, in case there's a shedu around who decides to possess you while you're away.
(EDIT) He doesn't describe himself as "Bear Shaman"; he's a magic defender who defends who/whatever currently needs defending. He talks to protective spirits in his dreams, some of whom look sort of like bears, who wants to protect the environment, the SINless, his allies, whoever has the body he's guarding, but he's still prone to losing it when nobody will listen to reason.
